RESIST is Now Available!

73 years ago, a young group of German students, Hans Scholl, Sophie Scholl, Alexander Schmorell, Willi Graf, Christoph Probst, and their professor, Kurt Huber, were murdered by the Nazis for speaking out against the horrible crimes their country was committing. They published leaflets entitled The White Rose to enlighten the German people and to call for resistance. Their story is one of faith in God, courage in the face of death, and hope that their homeland and the people residing in it would be pure and undefiled, like a white rose. 73 years later, people are still inspired and stirred to action by their integrity and courage. 




On this day in 1943, three of The White Rose resistance group leaders were put to death by guillotine. Hans Scholl was 24, Christoph Probst 23, and Sophie Scholl only 21. Sophie was only one year older than me when she sacrificed her life for this righteous and noble cause.



I was so moved by their conviction and bravery that last year I began writing Resist, a historical fiction told from Hans Scholls' point of view. One year later, through trials and tribulations, it's now available for purchase. I want everyone to know about these brave souls and to be inspired by their story as I have been.  


And so, dear readers, Resist is ready for you.
